Report of activity

Abstract of the 212th meeting of CCEP

 The 212th meeting of the Coordinating Committee for Earthquake Prediction(CCEP) was held at the Kanto Regional Survey Department of the GSI on August. 22th, 2016.  First of all, nationwide monitoring data of the seismic activity and the crustal deformation were reported. After that, we discussed about intensive discussion subject "Postseismic slip and viscoelasticity". Please see to the overviews below.
